Needham & Company analyst, Laura Martin, reiterated her Hold rating on shares of Time Warner (NYSE: TWX) and cut estimates ahead of earnings.

3Q16 estimates for TWX go to $7.016B in revenue (up 7% y/y and 2% below previous estimates), Adjusted Operating Income of $1.932B (up 5% y/y and 3% below previous estimates), and Adjusted EPS of $1.35 (up 8% y/y and 3% below previous estimates).
